Fantastic artist!
I highly recommend Colette, she is incredibly skilled both with make up and hair. I was lucky enough to get to know Colette before my big day as I booked a number of sessions with her including a make up trial, hair trial, make up lesson and a series of wedding facials. I felt that Colette really prepared my skin for my wedding day and she also made tweaks to my colour palette when she realised my skin tone had changed over the summer. I truly felt that Colette made me the most beautiful version of myself that I could be, I received so many wonderful compliments about how I looked, some people said I looked like a model and my bridesmaids said that Colette was worth her weight in gold, which she is. Colette did my Mum's hair and make up too and my Mum looked absolutely stunning, my Mum has never let anyone do her make up before and it was something she had been very nervous about, it is a testament to how good Colette is the fact that my Mum was happy for her to not only do her make up but also apply individual lashes! Our make up stayed in place ALL day. I am so happy that I found Colette and it was wonderful to have such a calm, happy and lovely person to get me ready for the best day of my life! I also do not know how I would have got my wedding dress on if Colette had not been there to help my Mum and sister with the task!

Beautiful Hair and Makeup
I knew I had to book Colette for my wedding hair and make up after fantastic bridesmaid make up at my friends wedding. Colette has been fantastic from the moment I contacted her. My hair and make up trial was perfect, Colette was happy to try numerous styles and ensure that I was 100% happy with my look. On our wedding day, we had such a lovely morning. The atmosphere was calm and relaxed. Colette and her colleague, Leanne, arrived early and were extremely professional throughout. All of my bridesmaids loved their make up and Colette even managed to squeeze in a couple of extra people! I absolutely loved my wedding hair and make up. Colette created my perfect look. I loved that Colette was as excited as we were! My make up and hair stayed perfectly in place all day. Thank you so much Colette xx

Colette the lifesaver
Our Make up and hair stylist stopped being in contact 2 weeks before my daughters wedding and we put out a call for someone to help and Colette stepped up. And we are so glad she did. She fitted in hair and make up trials in that time as I ( MOB ) is very allergic to many make up products but she patiently went through everything with me. We then had the day itself. Due to illness only Colette could come to do the 5 of us but she handle that with grace and we all looked amazing. I cannot fault the make up ,hair and her attention to detail. I don't wear make up so I was a little apprehensive I didnt want to look like mutton dressed as lamb but I looked totally natural. We are so grateful for everything Colette did in those two weeks. She is amazing
